Which games will appear this week on Steam and Co.? A question that we will answer again today, like every Monday morning. In addition to the long-awaited zombie slaughter Dead Island 2, many other exciting releases await you. RPG and strategy fans in particular should check out the complete list this time!
Highlight of the week: Dead Island 2
Dead Island 2 Preview: Much Better Than Expected!
genre: action | developer: Dambuster Studios | publication: April 21, 2023 (Epic Games Store)
This game has had an incredible odyssey: After Dead Island 2 was first announced at E3 2014, the zombie open world swallowed up several developers. Yager and Sumo Development tried unsuccessfully, then in 2019 Dambuster Studios took over. And now the thing is actually finished.
This action game is about surviving in zombie-infested Los Angeles. You choose one of the pre-made characters, each with different weapons and talents, have to fight against hordes of undead and finally find out the real reason for the outbreak of the zombie apocalypse.
Of course, you can find out how good the game turned out in the test on GameStar.de – be sure to check back on Tuesday afternoon!
